It's Spring!

Spring begins today.  Soon, once the roads are free of snow and ice, I will get out my bike and begin riding to work.  It's the first sign of spring in our house.  It's also the inspiration behind this card.

  I used a Kraftin' Kimmie image and sentiment on this card, Echo Park papers, and 3 Girl JAM Tuxedo ribbon from the Celebrations Bundle.  She's colored with Copic markers. I smudged some Tim Holtz distress ink around the edges to make it look just a little "muddy".  I used several Spellbinders dies, and a Lifestyle Crafts doily die. Think Spring!
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Kraftin' Kimmie Wonderful Wednesday -- ATG
7 Kids Challenge Blog -- ATG with a Twist: Diecuts (Spellbinders dies, Lifestyle Crafts doily die)
Addicted To Stamps -- Make Your Mark (coloring)
